The change of namespace was unnecessarily annoying, for sure. But 
functionally not a lot changed between CR and the new WD. The accept 
attributes are all optional. The most unnecessarily annoying thing 
was the xpointer attribute and the consequent deprecation of fragment 
IDs. I hope that will be restored to the old syntax before the 2nd 
CR. Then gain it does have the beneficial side effect of removing 
most of Roy Fielding's human factors objections to XPointer.
